Tina and Kelly together are quite the force to reckon with. This was very apparent from my very first encounter with the dynamic duo: Tina captivated the room with her highly entertaining stories and larger than life persona and Kelly, the shyer of the two, always managed to make quite the statement, albeit with very few but carefully selected words. Together, through the BagSnob platform, they have created an empire that appeals to both 16 year olds and 60 year olds alike. They have mastered the art of talking about the most expensive fashion items on the planet without ever seeming remotely obnoxious. Their trick? They make fashion fun and although they may have closets that are nothing but drool-worthy, they never take it too seriously. This is by far their biggest strength and the reason they have legions of die hard fans. Fans, that follow them so religiously that a mere tweet from Tina Craig back in 2011 caused a spike on the DL1961 website. So much so that that spike led to collaborating on our most gorgeous collection to date and a long lasting business relationship and friendship.
The world renowned blog BagSnob and DL1961 Premium Denim have teamed up to create the "Snob Essentials" capsule collection. This collection is aimed at the ultimate denim enthusiast and has pieces that are essential to all lifestyles.
BagSnob is a pioneer in the blogging world, being one of the first fashion blogs to explode in the virtual realm. As one of the most globally followed blogs, co-founders Tina Craig and Kelly Cook have made quite a name for themselves in the fashion world having been courted by major fashion houses like Chanel, Hermes, Gucci and DKNY. This is their first collaboration outside of handbags.
As the first and only denim collection to exclusively feature the revolutionary XFIT fabric, we are pioneers in our own right, making this collaboration a perfect fit (pun intended).
In this new day and age, the reach and success of social media outlets (and the digital world as a whole) is immeasurable. A collection with BagSnob puts DL1961 ahead of our competitors and helps us make a huge mark in both the digital world and fashion.
Denim is universal. Regardless of your style or the kind of lifestyle you lead, denim plays an integral part in all our lives. We identified a select group of distinguished New Yorkers with a unique sense of style to represent DL1961's Denim Movement. Each of the following participants is a personification of the DL1961 brand: a pioneer in their respective profession with notable achievements in his/her undeniably demanding industry. Beginning June 1st and running throughout the summer, we will highlight a progressive New Yorker making great things happen in their field. At the end of August, once all nominees have been revealed, fans can then vote for their favorite denim movement member on our website.
